Broome: An Exquisite Example of Australia's Wilderness

Often called the Pearl of Australia, Broome is an oasis on the western coast of the country. Here, deep red cliffs, white sandy beaches and turquoise waters come together. Broome is situated in the heart of the beautiful Kimberley region and includes some traditional land used by the native Yawuru people. Explorers, ocean lovers and even city folk enjoy the shear amount of entertainment options in Broome, and with the semi-arid climate and warm temperatures throughout the year, there is never a bad time to visit. Thanks to a permanent resident count of less than 15,000 people, Broome has a quaint and charming feel and a variety of accommodation types that allow holidaymakers to feel at home during their stay.

Water Sports and Camel Rides on Cable Beach

As one of the most popular destinations in Broome, Cable Beach is a must-see while in the area. Crystal blue waters and long stretches of white sand make for a picturesque beach setting, and the surf is top-notch, so surfers and swimmers are more than welcome.

While water sports and sunbathing are popular options in the daytime, as the sun goes down, there are a whole slew of other activities. The sunset views from Cable Beach are some of the best in Australia; as such, sunset picnics and beachside dinners are common among beachgoers. If you are lucky, you may even spot the famous Staircase to the Moon.

A more adventurous option - one that Cable Beach is famous for - is sunset camel rides right along the waterline. Whether you visit in the day or in the evening, bring your camera along! Besides Cable Beach, Broome is home to several other beaches. Options such as Reddell Beach and Town Beach give visitors plenty of space to spread out near the warm water.

Natural History and Scenic Flights in Broome

Hop on a seaplane for the best look at Horizontal Falls, a series of gorges that are fed by quickly moving tides. From above, you see the setup of the landscape and can watch the water, which peaks at around 10 meters, without risking getting caught in the fast-moving flow.

Gantheaume Point is a great place to spend the day exploring. Visitors can climb up the rock formations or simply stand back and take in their reddish colour against the blue water. Explore the area on foot during the lowest tides of the lunar cycle or take a hover craft tour at any time during low tide to see Broome's dinosaur footprints. Locals and tour guides know all the best spots to search; ask around if you do not have any luck on your own.

Experience Broome’s Past

History buffs of all ages will have lots to see, do and learn in Broome. Some of the most popular sites for a look at years past include the SSJG Heritage Centre, which tells the tale of the nuns who raised the "stolen generation" and the Broome Historical Museum, a site that details everything from the region’s first pearl divers to the impact of cyclones on the area. Another heritage site, the oldest outdoor cinema in Australia in also located in Broome.

Broome: a Multicultural Community

Numerous cultures are intertwined in the rich tapestry that is Broome’s past. Travellers can learn all about Broome’s communities by taking various guided walks. In fact, cultural information and insight is bountiful in Broome’s cemeteries. The most well-known cemetery and one of the most visited due to its cultural significance, is the Japanese Cemetery. Travellers can take a guided tour to learn about its tie to Broome's pearling industry. Other cemeteries in the area include the Chinese Cemetery and the main Broome Cemetery.

In the town centre, you’ll find a vibrant Chinatown. Today, as in years past, Broome’s Chinatown is heavily focused on the pearling industry. Shop for some of the freshest pearls right out of Broome's own waters, sample pearl meat and see demonstrations of old diving gear. While in town, also be sure to sample the fine dining establishments, to visit Broome's many art galleries and to shop for some souvenirs.

Getting to Broome

Ideal short stay cottage. Very well equipped, clean and comfortable.

5 of 5
The building is a permanent cottage in a caravan park. It is ideal for a couple as it has a kitchen / dining area / lounge area and a separate double bedroom. It is very well appointed with everything might need - dishwasher, washer, full oven, gas hotplate, microwave, large fridge, coffee machine, tv, air con, timber floors etc etc. Car parking is provided alongside the building. A paved outdoor area with table , chairs and a BBQ completes the outdoor area. Overall it is a very pleasant place from which to explore Broome and is very good value for money. Highly recommended.

Stunning, immaculate home

Charmaine and Kev were super helpful and made our stay a breeze. The room, the location, the view, the fresh sea breeze were exactly what I was looking for. I can highly recommend this accomodation.
